The Bible Is True: Part One The Dead Sea Scrolls

Many people believe the bible is true and many people do not. However in the 20Th and the 21Th centuries, study of the bible has become more scientific as well as archaeological. Science and archaeology sometimes overlap each other so this hub will have two parts. This hub is part one and will focus on The Dead Sea Scrolls.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered in 1947 northwest of the Dead Sea. What is important is that some of the Dead Sea Scrolls contain copies of many of the books that are in the bible. Isaiah, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Judges, Ezekiel, Psalms, Jubilees, Part of the book of Noah, Daniel, Numbers, Jeremiah, Job, and Ruth. Not all of the books are exact copies because part of the Dead Sea Scrolls are still being put together, but there is enough information in them that has been de-coded by scientists to know which part of the bible they match.

The most amazing part of the Dead Sea Scrolls is the "Crucified Messiah Scroll" This scroll was translated by Dr. Robert Eisenman, Professor of Middle East Religions of California State University. This scroll identified the ''Messiah'' as " The branch of David" and wrote he was pierced and wounded. The scroll also describes the "Messiah" ''the one who would suffer for the sins of his people''. This scroll also identified the ''Messiah as a '' leader of a community'' who "was" "put to death". This reference clearly points to Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus was in the bible was from the line of David and He was put to death.

The "Son of God" Scroll. This scroll refers to the Messiah as "the Son of God" and "the Son of the Most High" these are exact wording in the Gospel of Luke.

These words were written about 2,000 years ago and were hidden in caves. They were left untouched by human hands. They wrote about a Messiah from a line of David who had been put to death, for the sins of his people. A Messiah who had been crucified. The Dead Sea Scrolls do not confirm that he rose from the dead, but if Jesus had not risen, wouldn't his followers have remained in hiding? But they did not remain in hiding. They allowed themselves to be killed for continuing to follow his word. Christianity would not have become what it is today. The most wonderful thing that happened, is that Jesus Christ allowed himself to be crucified for our sins, so that we could be forgiven.

Thank God for Jesus, and thank You Jesus for allowing yourself to be crucified on a cross, for our sins, died and rose three days later alive! Thank God! Thank God! Thank God!

I just saw a documentary on the lost books of the Bible on Sunday. It was very interesting. I would love to be able to read through these scrolls. I believe it would build my faith. Yes, thank God for Jesus! Voted up.

Our Savior is truly awesome in His love for us. About the dead sea scroll, it adds fervor to our Christian faith that indeed what we believe and uphold to be our basis of faith and practice is God's Word. No matter how Satan and unbelief tries to trample it, the effort is meaningless because as God Himself said, "The grass weathers, the flower fades, but the Word of the Lord remains forever." Is. 40:8

Very good hub. The Dead Sea Scrolls are indeed a great discovery. What makes them more valuable or valid than the tablets revealed to Joseph Smith?

The Dead Sea Scrolls are both more valuable and valid than the tablets made up by Joseph Smith because they show that the Bible has only changed languages throughout the years, and that the content remains the same.

The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm the veracity of the Old Testament, and this is a great hub for bringing that to peoples attention. Voted up!

Thank you for your comment. The Dead Sea Scrolls are amazing, the thing that is the best, is that they do not add to the bible. They confirm it.

Hubert Williams, thank you for your comment. My thought about the tablets Joseph Smith discovered, added to the bible. Remember in Revelation. No one is allowed to add or take away anything from the bible. Joseph Smith added a lot to the bible.

The Dead Sea scrolls were indeed such an important discovery, confirming as they do what we have as the Holy Bible. The dedicated people who have worked so painstakingly on piecing together all the fragments have done such a wonderful job. This is a great topic to write on at Easter when we have so much for which to thank our Heavenly Father. Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia.

Blossom thank you so much for your comment. We know so much that Jesus Christ is our savior. It is true! We know it is true, because the scrolls were left untouched for 2,000 years! Thank you again for your comment!

Thank you Michele for great Hub.

Being in Jerusalem I seen Isaiah Scroll displaced. I would like to add the Gospel of Luke (historian and physician) was also found but Jewish friends did not know what to do with that. Finally on pressure of Historical Societies it was published. Both Isaiah and Luke writings are identical what we have in the Bible. Both books are Messianic and sufficient to convince many.

Interesting and fascinating hub Michele.

Just makes you wander, the scrolls have been discover over 60 years ago, many of them in perfect condition; what took so long to publish them?

Why for many decades only small group of people had access to them?

Knowing what Illuminati can do, how do we know that what had been publish now is not the fruit of crafty deception?

BTW Michele,  although I consider the Book of Jubilee an important historical document, I don't think this book is part of any Bible.

True Sagittarius, only a few writings were allowing in the bible. The counsel of Nicea was the one that decided what was to be in the bible and what was not to be in the bible.

Actually revival from perverted church occurred during reformation (Dr Martin Luther) and 100 years before by Jan Hus in Prague. They burn him at stake. We have "Kralicka Biblia" (printed before English KJV) in the Czech language 8 volumes. Reformers elected Bible books if they were quoting and related to Old Testament or not. Extra Biblical writings never was allowed placed in the Bible. Heretics like to promote them to support their teachings.

Regarding of Dead Sea Scrolls they are identical to our Bible printed centuries before they were discovered. Jewish own the scrolls. They were hesitating to release Luke's Gospel, but they did. The Bible is written in digital mode so God protected His Book from analog form so to speak. Enemy of Jew and Christians like to undermine true teaching of Bible.

Michele, the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts include fragments of all the books of the Old Testament except the Book of Esther; should this book be part of the present Bible? Should all the books from Dead Sea Scrolls be included in the present Bible? 

I personally think that counsel of Niece under Constantine the Great did a fairly good job. The problem is, that people talk a lot about the Bible without understanding what they are reading in it.

The oldest manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls are fragments of The Book of Job; and I believe that The Book of Job is the most important book of the Bible.

Victor Hugo, French humanist, dramatist and leading poet, one of the builders of our  civilization once said:

“Tomorrow, if all the literature was to be destroyed and it was left to me to retain one work only, I should save Job”. 

I agree with him, and I think that this book, which in fact is not of Jewish but of Edomite literature, would be enough for the believer to be saved.

Greetings Michele

YOU have concluded this hub on highly elevated note:"Thank God For Jesus, and thank You Jesus for allowing Youself to be crucified on across for our sins, died and rose three days later alive. Thank God, Thank God, Thank God. ". WHAT A CONFESSION! So often "we" the Redeemed, rigard God's redemptive act as granted. You are reminding as to be grateful constantly. Thank you .

So many edifying comments came through.Thank God for everyone .

How ever (please accept my apology for beeing negative)--there is someone who to my knowledge violates the rule by pushin own agenda. On top of it this person Sagittarius is doing that to many believers; this time he is promoting a humanist "builder our civilization who elevates something else above the rest of the Sripture, plus Sag. Says "I agree with him adding more disgraceful words in attempt to put down God of Israel, and trying to make of us a laughing stock.

None of the sinner has any right to make comments about the Bible. God was there when the book was completed, if needed, he coul provide more ,extra,-- the ONE WHO CREATED WHOLE UNIVERSE, knows how much is there what we need to catch up with till we reach complete righteousness . Sinners needs first of all to confess theirs sins, ask for forgiveness before received into the family of God.

Continue with good work. Voted great.
